Definitely something happened.

I suspect the smear campaign thread and raid may be only part of the story. I'm assuming, for example, that after the mods deleted the thread they probably at least gave Heir the chance to explain themselves. My guess is that something behind the scenes may have happened as well.

Respectfully, I don't think this discussion serves the best interests of this thread, or, indeed, those of Noble.

 

Do you think we could drop it and move on, please?

 

(no dig at anyone, just requesting that we move on)

Agreed. We don't want this thread getting locked.

+1. No need to ruin this thread.

Agreed. Sorry I even brought it up - I meant it as information only, not really to spark a discussion. 

 

Anyway, about those Noble products....

Back to the topic of artwork - something I haven't yet seen on a CIEM is inlaid holograms. That could look pretty cool, but I don't know if the thickness of the acrylic faceplate might spoil the hologram effect, due to refracting the ambient light.

 

 

These are crummy examples, quickly grabbed from google images, but you get the general idea:

I made a new cable for the K10, now I want a set of clear/silver ciems to match :D

 

28 AWG multistrand SPC from PlusSound, very soft and surprisingly light, good for long-term comfort. NOTHING can compare to the Noble Cable when it comes to flexibility though...

Nice work! Is that a barrel from a Neutrik plug being used as a splitter? Sneaky!

That's a very nice looking cable Soren! Also have you been rolling the op amps for the PB2 yet?

Thanks man! Yup, took a rotating steel brush to it and it works great as a cinch:

Thanks guys! Have installed a combo of buffers and opamps from the kit that comes with the PB2 and just kinda stuck to that setup. I have ordered a topkit from Hiflight though :smile:

 

Back to Noble - Have anyone gotten a clear/silver set of ciems yet?

The set of 8C we built with Purple Heart had clear shells. By request we also built a set of 3C with solid black shells and clear faceplates.

 

I'll have to go back and look for these photos (too many photos).
